Andrea Rossi has reported that he and his team is currently testing out a much larger version of the E-Cat QX, which he has named the E-Cat SK (after Sven Kullander).
Rossi was asked on the Journal of Nuclear Physics what temperature he was reaching with the E-Cat SK, and he responded: “1 eV (circa), measured by means of the spectrometer.”

Could you please elaborate on the temperature measurement in eV ?
I’d like to understand how “hot” is 1eV, and I’m only used to °C or K.
Is 1eV really equals to 11604.5250061657 kelvin [K] like I could read here :
If it is really is so hot (that’s hotter than the average (5778 K) temperature of the Sun when excluding solar flares), I think those who are still calling it “cold” fusion really have to find another name for it 🙂

Yes, 1 eV=~ 11 600 K ( 11 873 C )
The T of our sun is between 15 and 1 millions K, with cold areas at ~5-6 000 K
I agree on the fact that ” cold fusion ” is not a proper definition, LENR is better.
All to be confirmed of course, but if this is reality, and the COP is high, then this is another impressive development. Although I had thought that the 2600 C (600 C on the secondary circuit, after the heat exchanger) of the E-Cat QX would have been plenty hot enough for most practical needs.
